My friends Joy McCann (of Little Miss Attila) and Dan Collins (of Piece of Work in Progress) have teamed up to create a brand new website for conservatives-minded folks called The Conservative Commune. It is a site that will not only have all the trappings of a blog — news and commentary, video content, and […]

Apropos of nothing, I checked the “stats” part of my WordPress dashboard. I’ve written 6,763 posts since I started The Sundries Shack over 7 years ago. If I assume an average blog post length of 500 words (and that may be a bit low), that works out to 3,381,500 total words written over that time. […]

I’m happy to report that the Trusty Ford is back in its appointed place. The repairs were not cheap by any means, but the worst did not happen and, well, you guys came through in a way I could never have imagined. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. I can not tell […]

I’ve never asked for anything like this before, but I know the internet is capable of quite a lot, and I have some pretty darned amazing readers and friends here so here goes. My faithful Ford broke down yesterday on the way home from work. The hope at the time was that repairing it would […]

Fair warning, readers and friends. I’ve been a bit restless with the blog. I can’t quite put my finger on what’s giving me an itch about The Sundries Shack, but I’m looking at the current blog layout as one possible (and easy to change) culprit. Don’t be surprised if I shake the theme up a […]

In an effort to make The Sundries Shack a better place to find smart commentary on politics and pop culture, I’ve invited another guest writer to post here. Hey, it’s not going to get more smart around here with me as the only regular contributor, right? My friend Lyndsey Fifield is young, smart, witty and […]

Last weekend, the guys from the United Liberty website, a rollicking bunch of libertarians (though not crazy ones!), asked me to appear on their podcast. We did a panel-style format that features not only UL stalwarts Jason Pye and Brett Bittner but also progressive Democrat Jason Cecil. It was supposed to run an hour, but […]

If you’re one of those folks who want to take advantage of some of the great Black Friday deals and you have no desire to fight the crowds, don’t forget that Amazon is running deals pretty much around the clock right now. I don’t doubt that you can find all sorts of good bargains to […]
